that patients need to have? because today i'm struck with the fact that if i go google something on the internet, a certain disease, or treatment, i will get hundreds, perhaps thousands of different sites to go to. and one thing i keep hearing from patients is they have difficulty navigating that. how do they know what the high quality data that's out there exists -- you referenced a couple. but if we're going to ask patients and consumers to play an active role and help us move forward and change this system, how do they navigate that? what's they're role within that? >> guest: that's a great question. there's probably even with all these great web sites out there, consumer reports, hospital safety scores, hospital compares. looking at infection scores. even with all these new web sites being populated with more and more information every year, nothing substitutes for a great conversation between you and a doctor or you and a nurse in the doctor's office. there's something to be said for the patient that does the research on google which, by the way, is 92% accurate for health information we ha
of convergence going on in communication. what cable does and what facebook and google does is getting more like this than like this, right? but the reality is they come from very different foundational places. we have a very secure, trusted, um, expensive relationship with the consumer. we take your money, and we know that that momentum, you know, when you're at the point of sale, one, there's always a certain grumpiness about that. i'm the guy who asks you to send your money in today. i come into your home literally, physically i have a guy who comes into your home to install something. i have a relationship with you that depends on a really high degree of trust is so that you find that subscription worth paying every month. i have to protect your comfort with that relationship to a much greater degree than i think some of the tech companies have to. um, a lot of times, and i don't mean this disparagingly, you're very transactional on the internet. the internet at one point had a lot more experimentation with subscription-like models. when you have the subscription model, you have a trusted re
convergence going on in cable tv. what cable does, and facebook and google, it's getting more like this than this. but the reality is they come from very different foundational places. we have a very secure, trusted, expensive relationship with the consumer. we take your money and we know that doesn't -- when you're at the point of sale, one, there's always a certain grumpiness about that. i'm the guy that asked you to send your money in today. i come into your home. literally. physically. i have a guy who comes into your home to install something. i have a relationship with you that depends on a really high degree of trust so you find that subdescription worth paying every month. i have to protect your comfort with that relationship to a much greater degree than i think some of the tech companies have, too. the internet at one point hatt had more experimentation with the subscription model. most of the internet has blown past that. we don't do rfs, anymore to web pages, very few products are offered in subscription unless you're an organization like "new york times." most of it is just who
'm struck with the fact that a five google something on the internet, a certain disease or a treatment, i will get hundreds, perhaps thousands of different sites to go to. one thing i have been hearing from patience is they have difficulty navigating that. how could they know what the high-quality data that is out there is. you reference the couple but if we are going to ask patients and consumers to play an active role and help us move forward and change the system, how do they navigate that? what is their role within that? .. >> that we have many moving parts and players where people are responsible with little accountability. what is the role of teamwork that we deliver? what is the role of the patient within that? how do we move forward with physicians, regulators, pati ents? >> everybody seems to recognize t market is part of high quality care but we haven't measured it for a long time. if there is one part of the assembly line that is so shoddy it is a reliable but yet it hurts the entire process but nobody looks into it. there is a survey that measures the quality to ask every day
-- fell down and hit his lip balm the pedestal and was afflicted with the flesh eating bacteria. google his name is jake. there are pictures of him. his surgeons were miraculously the way they could graft the skid and they attribute his cure to her intercession and was that it -- verified through the vatican that these are paranormal occurrences that could only come from above. the process is still slow. they decided last year to canonize her october 21st the biography is where you take the fact and you tried to make a story. you try to get the motive motive, human psychology, we know how we tried to make it real in a way that this sympathetic. it is true in the deeper way so you try to tell the story in a way that is productive to "the reader" that they say what to what i have done? and a great movie or book does that. it is the artistic creation but other they and the bare facts anything written about her past have some degree of fiction from whoever writes it. i a tried to show her with the struggle surmounting these issues in her life what it did to her and brought her to a place th
. and he was afflicted with the flesh-eating bacteria. and if you go online, you can either google her name or his name. it's jake finkbonner. they have pictures of him when he was in the throes of this malady. so jake finkbonner had survived. his surgeons were absolutely miraculous in the way they were able to graft skin to cover what had been consumed by the bacteria, and they attributed his survival, his cure to her intersession. so that was verified that supernormal or paranormal occurrences can only come from above. that was in '05 or '06 when he had that malady. and then they decided to canonize her last year, i think it was in december of 2011. and they put it forward on october 21, 2012, was the date of her canonization. a novelized biography is something where you take the facts, and you try to tell a story out of them, and you impute motive, and you try to get a human psychology that we can respect because we are alive, we have people that we've known and, you know, we know our own inner hearts. and you try to make it real. in a way that's sympathetic. and i don't mean sympathetic
and the iphone and google and facebook and trevor and face the federal government that runs up the pace. [laughter] and you have no serious effort in either party to overhaul the system. in that sense we are told by people that are running a disaster we need more of your money to prop up the disaster, we can't reform, and it is a bipartisan failure. now i want to talk about how washington would have dealt with this. washington is a remarkable person. i think that he was the most important single american and all of us stand on his shoulders and i think we wouldn't have won the american revolutionary war without him and we will not have gotten in the constitution without him and we might not have been able to find an orderly system. and we all stand on his shoulders. washington is very the gun listening to people who actually knew what they were doing. and it was a very specific narrow way. i'm not against the people who know more about you do on the topic. it's the consultants that no less than you do so you feel secure because you paid somebody else. so washington, for example, in the
fighting, what they were saying to me in english versus what we googled them saying to the persian press in persia was radically different as to the status of the u.s. fleet headquarters and so forth. so we do have a constant problem in which many of the people working on -- >> what did they say? you said you spoke to them in persian. >> okay. when they spoke in english, they would talk about how we genuinely want reforms and that so long as the reforms occur, the united states, of course, would be welcome to keep the fifth fleet headquarters in bahrain. not when i spoke to them in persian, but when we googled their names in persian to call up what they had said to the iranian press, they talked about how the colonial vestige of the american satan must be expelled forthwith. so a slight difference in tone between what they were saying in english and what they were saying in persian. that's constantly a problem, of course, in the middle east as you know where interlocutors will be told one thing, and they will be told another thing subsequently. when it comes to television, most baa rainn

like wilco nab in google executives that were on their black theories on whatever they are all socially networked and if progressives. if you're busy reading peep yours like "the wall street journal," you had pundits seem to islamists are late to this party. this whole process is being driven by young progressives who want a more moderate, tolerant, progressive, democratic future in defense of democracies we really mean it, which is liberal democracy. i didn't see it that way and lo and behold, just like the bolsheviks overtook the mensheviks in overtook lafayette , you begin to see the muslim brotherhood. then the brotherhood offers this promise that it was not going to detest the presidential election. you remember this promise? will not contest the presidential election. you already knew things were going in a very bad way when as soon as they saw the opportunity, they broke. then you have the election. either way here, i very politely disagree with rob satloff, for whom i have real respect and that i think he's somewhat -- [inaudible] -- dramatically underestimates the strength of i
